This book was very good because it was suspenceful and interesting. It was about a boy named leigh, who wrote to his favorite author about what was going on in his life. Leigh entered a writing contest. The winners got to meet a mysterious famous author. Lee didn't win but he got honerable mention. Then his teacher found out that the winning poem was copied out of a book, and was not an original. So the winner would not get to meet the mysterious authour, Angela Badger. So Leigh took her place. Leigh got to have lunch with Angela Badger. At the end, leigh's dad came unexpectedly and the 2 got to bond for the first time in a long time.

Read this book as a fourth grader and found it to be profound in the trials and tribulations of a child growing up with a father who he rarely sees and misses.

A student writes letters to his favorite author. We never see the author's letters, but this is a very good book.
